    Love the panel! Need help in picking a resort–deciding b/t GF & POFQ. My mom has trouble walking long distances, so need a compact resort. Any suggestions on which resort, & which blgd to request to be closer to restaurants/transportation? Thanks!

    Love right back at you, Sabrina!  With regard to overall number of rooms at the two resorts you mentioned, they are very close, with Port Orleans French Quarter taking a slight lead.  That said, you might find that your walking distance at Port Orleans to be shorter than you would at the Grand Floridian, unless you get a room in the main building at the Grand Floridian.  When we stayed there a couple of years ago, our room was a quite a ways away from the monorail station and buses.

    If you opt for Port Orleans French Quarter, you should consider requesting building 4 as it is very close to the bus stop and the food court!
